Netflix Cancels Drama ‘Bloodline’

Final 10 Episodes to Be Streamed in May 2017

Netflix has opted against a fourth season of Emmy nominated drama “Bloodline,” which will officially conclude after the season three episodes – 10 in total — are made available for streaming in May 2017. Debuting on Feb. 9, 2015, “Bloodline” followed the exploits of the Rayburn family after the eldest brother and black sheep (Ben Mendelsohn) returns home, exposing the emotional demons at the family’s core. Created by the team behind “Damages,” the series also stars Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini, Norbert Leo Butz, Jacinda Barrett, John Leguizamo, Jamie McShane, Enrique Murciano, Sissy Spacek, and Sam Shepard.

Historically, “Bloodline” is only the third Netflix original show to face the axe, following dramas “Lilyhammer” and “Hemlock Grove.”

  1. It’s hard to believe Netflix cancelled one of their mega-hits.

    Hard to believe they have mega-hits… 😉

    • seriously ? /// have you heard of Orange Is The New Black, Daredevil, Stranger Things, House of Cards … sure you are watching Netflix and maybe are not plugged into some other device:)

      • Having heard about a show isn’t the same as the show being a hit.

        Most people have heard of New Girl, yet nobody (almost) watches it…

        House of Cards was hyped to the n-th degree and is the only show of their that I know people have watched.

        Orange is the New Black was pure hype and the others I have really little awareness of (and don’t know anyone who watches them).

        It IS hard to believe that Netflix, using the same bad recipe the regular networks use (remakes and adaptations made by confirmed flop-makers) would do any better.
